Today I am sharing some really simple geography and cultural work we have been enjoying at home. Above and below Montessori Flag Map Work c/o Montessori Shop.
You can also see in the background our Continents Globe which we have used for years. Montessori children first learn the continents then later the countries!
Australasia Puzzle Map c/o Montessori Shop with handmade labels. The labels add a language component which is important for the child who is learning to read and write.
Identifying individual flags using a Children's Atlas.
This is a memory game but we've always used it as a matching game. It has lasted years, as a toddler they are simply matching the designs which is great for visual perception. At five Otis is naming the countries the flags belong to with some confidence.
Other geography materials that I really like for the home include the Montessori Map Work board book and the Hugg-A-Planet, perfect for toddlers and up!
